1 Peter 2:4-5

Context
A Living Stone, a Chosen People

2:4 So as you come to him, 1  a living stone rejected by men but 2  chosen and priceless 3  in God’s sight, 2:5 you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer 4  spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1 tn Grk “to whom coming…you are built up…” as a continuation of the reference to the Lord in v. 3.

2 tn Greek emphasizes the contrast between these two phrases more than can be easily expressed in English.

3 tn Grk “chosen, priceless.”

4 tn Grk “unto a holy priesthood to offer.”
